Wilmington NC lunches

Just wanted to post about my latest lunch outings.
Tango Du Chat now serves lunch. Great space, the french fries were great. Unfourtunatley, my sandwich was rather bland:(
I should have had the mussels or something other than a sandwich. The bread was too hard for what they were trying to do.
La Costa, that burned, on Market has reopened and has added a bar and seems much cleaner than before. Do not get my wrong, the food is very good. I believe that somehow it is better than the other two locations. It tastes fresher. I loved the queso dip, it is more chunky with vegetables than the other locations. The salsa seems better too.
Bento Box at Mayfaire... He makes great sushi but it is expensive. Who think that $10 is an expensive tempura shrimp roll.? I want to eat there more but it is a little pricey for what you get. Anyone know when Nikki's plans to open at Mayfaire?
Temptations... the first time I have been on that side of town since the remodel... Same menu items, much improved atmosphere. I never did like the raised seating area but now a better, more comfortable space. Same good lunch. I have a hard time getting away from the brie and tukey sandwich.
This brings me to my latest stop. Francesco's on Kerr, attached to apple annies. They have embraced the column. Lunch was good. Panini pressed sandwich. Guess what I had? A turkey, brie and apple! A complete knockoff from temtations menu but grilled and tasty. My mom did have some gelato and she said it was wonderful.
Fresh Market opened yesterday and I browsed the store today. They have sushi being rolled, lots and lots of cheeses, a rotisserie and huge meat department. They have some great stuff. Some was pricey as you might expect but the store is a great addition to Wilmington. I hope they will be able to maintain the variety and selection they have for the opening week.
